* PuritySue: Misaki fits this to a tee.

* CaptainObvious: Much of the dialogue throughout the story arc. Particularly anytime something unusual happens in one of the matches, several spectators or developers will often restate what the viewer already realizes. Also every time Misaki or Hatoko mention (as they do over and over, often at inopportune times) that they really enjoy playing Angelic Layer.



** Subverted in that [[spoiler: Shuuko]] is mostly accepted by her peers, even her own sister, and is the champion of Angelic Layer, so it's not like anyone hates her for her disability. [[spoiler: Her sister even outright says that there are lots of people in wheelchairs who are good parents who have even worse diseases than she has.]]

* TearJerker: Some viewers have found themselves driven to ManlyTears during the final battle. Especially when the roses appear.. *sniff*
** Episode 25, particularly when [[spoiler:Misaki wheels her mother to her place before the final match]].
** Also the effect of the song Ameagari/After The Rain that starts to play as this is happening and leads through the ending credits. You don't really get a chance to stop crying until after the credits end because this heavy ballad is still wailing away.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Many of the fights qualify, especially toward the end. The final battle between Hikaru and [[spoiler:Athena]] was epic.
** The semifinal match between [[spoiler: Hikaru]] and [[spoiler: Wizard]] got so intense, this troper found himself gritting his teeth and snarling while watching it unfold.

* BetterThanCanon: Because of a '''very''' well-done example of AdaptationExpansion (see main page entry), many fans and critics seem to prefer the ''Angelic Layer'' anime over CLAMP's original manga.

* ValuesDissonance: [[spoiler:Shuuko]] fears that, if [[spoiler:she stays with her daughter Misaki]], some traits of her will bring said child the scorn of others due to having "a useless mother". [[spoiler: In the manga, she's cripplingly and horribly shy; in the anime, she's an IllGirl and in a wheelchair]]. This comes from the ''very'' complicated view of human relationships in Japan.
